New Customers For Swiss-AS AMOS
AMOS software from Swiss-AS, which helps users manage maintenance, engineering and logistics processes while assuring regulatory compliance, just secured two new customers. Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation selected the software to support the certification process for its new MRJ90 Regional Jet through flight-testing taking place in Moses Lake, Washington. Most recently, Air Tahiti Nui chose AMOS for its new B787 fleet. The software will be implemented before the new aircraft are introduced, so no legacy data will need to be transferred from the airline’s old software.
IFS Maintenix Rollout At ATSG Subsidiaries
IFS Maintenix software will be rolled out at three of U.S. airline group ATSG’s subsidiaries. A full suite of engineering, planning and line maintenance functions will be implemented at Cargo Aircraft Management—an aircraft leasing subsidiary—as well as ABX Air and Air Transport International, which are two of the company’s cargo carrier subsidiaries.

New Applications for Aviatar
Lufthansa Technik’s Aviatar platform has seen heavy interest within the industry, and now LHT is releasing new applications to bolster the platform’s functionality. The first is ToolNOW, an online brokerage platform for tool loans. LHT says the demand-driven platform means providers will only list tools that are available for loan rather than their entire inventory, resulting in more reliable offers. According to Martin Beecken, product owner for ToolNOW, the platform has had more than 50 registered companies since its launch in March 2018, including MROs, airlines and OEMs.
Still undergoing development is AirGlance, an application designed to streamline base maintenance communications through layover management functionality and a fleet dashboard. LHT says the application will track turnaround time (TAT) items, layover progress, milestone completion and more. AirGlance is currently undergoing testing and LHT is hoping to deploy the application later this year.
ICRON MRO Planning Software
With so much growth expected in the Asia-Pacific region over the next few years, ICRON is strengthening its presence there with a new office in Kuala Lumpur and an expansion of its office in Singapore.
ICRON’s Maintenance Cards Interval functionality was also recently selected by Turkish Technic to optimize balancing the distribution of task cards for planned maintenance. The software allows for real-time visibility of all day-to-day operations, with functionality to coordinate schedules for workforce, spare parts, equipment and more. According to ICRON, the software will increase Turkish Technic’s aircraft flight time and productivity by minimizing early task card application.
Ramco Systems and XinFin Blockchain Partnership
MRO software provider Ramco has entered into a blockchain partnership with XinFin FinTech. Ramco will use the Singapore-based blockchain developer’s proprietary XDC01 distributed ledger protocol to build a new architecture aimed at providing blockchain solutions to customers. Both companies will work on the hybrid blockchain solutions out of Ramco’s innovation lab in Singapore. According to Ramco, the collaboration will reduce congestion of blockchain networks and lead to a set of distributed ledgers that can prevent users from sending tokens to incompatible networks or non-existent addresses.
More Mobility, Customers For Rusada
This January, Rusada marketing head Michael Flannigan told MRO Network that the company will be building on Envision nGen’s software capabilities through a number of dedicated mobile applications. Meanwhile, two new customers selected Rusada’s software in February. Recently relaunched airline Air Belgium selected Envision to manage its maintenance and engineering information system, including support of quality and safety obligations for the airline’s current fleet of Airbus A340s. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) also chose Envision software to support its full range of aviation operations, including maintenance support and inventory management.
